an awful stench rising from all this

Tyler Durden: Beware The CoronaNazis – “There seem to be an increasing number of players willing to play politics to delay reopening to prize concessions and control. … All political actions have consequences – and when the government has to play to the fears of Corona-phonics and respond to the Virus-Nazis, we are going to get sub optimal outcomes.

ibid: The 2006 Origins Of The ‘Lockdown’ Idea – “What’s truly surprising is just how recent the theory behind lockdown and forced distancing actually is. So far as anyone can tell, the intellectual machinery that made this mess was invented 14 years ago, and not by epidemiologists but by computer-simulation modelers. It was adopted not by experienced doctors – they warned ferociously against it – but by politicians.”

“Thus did some of the most highly trained and experienced experts on epidemics warn with biting rhetoric against everything that the advocates of lockdown proposed. It was not even a real-world idea in the first place and showed no actual knowledge of viruses and disease mitigation. Again, the idea was born of a high-school science experiment using agent-based modelling techniques having nothing at all to do with real life, real science, or real medicine.

Ideas have consequences, as they say. Dream up an idea for a virus-controlling totalitarian society, one without an endgame and eschewing any experienced-based evidence that it would achieve the goal, and you might see it implemented someday. Lockdown might be the new orthodoxy but that doesn’t make it medically sound or morally correct.

Howard Richman: Dr. Fauci and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study victims – this is how you do it! “Fauci is about to begin a study in which he will test HCQ by administering it without zinc to mild and moderately severe COVID-19 cases. In contrast, doctors at St. Francis Hospital in New York pay attention to the medical research. They just announced a study that will test HCQ with zinc with non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients.” This is how folks like Rick Bright get their ammunition.

“COVID-19 patients are largely drawn from groups that are known to have zinc deficiencies (i.e., the elderly, Black Americans, diabetics, those with cancer, and those with low hemoglobin levels). When Fauci tests HCQ on them without giving them zinc at the same time, many will die. In the 1930s and 1940s, the NIH deprived Black Americans of life-saving penicillin in the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Now, under the leadership of Antony Fauci, the NIH is about to begin a study that will deprive them of life-saving zinc.

Edmund DeMarche: Trump blasts ’60 Minutes,’ ‘creep’ HHS whistleblower after broadcast – Bright said “I believe my last-ditch effort to protect Americans from that drug was the final straw that they used and believed was essential to push me out,” – a drug in public use for over 50 years but he wants to save the public from their doctor’s advice.

“Azar hit back Thursday, slamming Bright’s testimony as “yet another attack on President Trump” laden with “disproven, unfounded allegations.”

“The president literally did what Bright is saying should be done,” Azar told “The Story.” “This guy was singing in a choir back then of everybody. We were all singing the same tune, and now he’s trying to claim that he was a soloist.”

Jed Babbin: Rogue Judge Sullivan – “There’s no end to the tormenting of Michael Flynn — but a writ of mandamus from the Justice Department should put a stop to it.” … “Sullivan’s action is unconstitutional, cruel, and an enormous abuse of his judicial power.

“There is an awful stench rising from all this interest in Flynn, the FBI’s misconduct in pursuing him, and the actions of the Mueller prosecutors who pursued Flynn and blackmailed him into confessing crimes he didn’t commit. That stench now also rises from Sullivan’s action in delaying the dismissal of all charges against Flynn.

This has gone on far too long, and at far too great a cost to Flynn and his family. The DoJ should slap Sullivan with a writ of mandamus to the D.C. Circuit immediately. There is no reason for the toll of this injustice to continue to mount.

This has gone on far too long
